Positive psychology

Positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals--including persons with disabilities--and communities to thrive. This field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. Positive psychology has three central concerns: positive emotions, positive individual traits, and positive institutions.
